Little Rosey is a 1990 Canadian/American animated television series produced by Nelvana that aired in the United States on Saturday mornings on ABC. It was Roseanne Barr's first attempt at a cartoon.
Based loosely on comedian Roseanne Barr's childhood, this animated series aired late in the day on ABC's Saturday morning lineup.
The series revolved an young 8 year-old Rosey, her sister Tess, and best friend Buddy. The three would use their imaginations to overcome the obstacles they faced, such as spelling bees, family vacations, and rules that their parents forced upon them.
Among the recurring characters were Rosey's parents, little sister Nonnie, baby brother Tater, and a pair of nemesis science nerds. Each episode was consisted of two 11-minute segments.
Two years later, an animated special called The Rosey and Buddy Show was produced as a primetime special that aired on May 15, 1992, in which Rosey and Buddy invade Cartoonland to take on the meddling executives who wanted to "change their show". In the 1992 special, Barr voiced the character.
